LESSING Karl Friedrich (b. 1808, Breslau, d. 1880, Karlsruhe) Nationality : German

German painter, great-nephew of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729-1781), philosopher, dramatist, and critic. He studied architecture in Berlin at the Konigliche Bau-Akademie under Karl Friedrich Schinkel, before transferring to the Kunstakademie, where he became a pupil of Wilhelm Schadow in 1825. The next year Lessing followed Schadow to Dusseldorf, where the latter had been appointed Director of the Kunstakademie. He exercised great influence on the Dusseldorf school; his picture Das trauernde Konigspaar (Mourning Royal Couple) brought him great popularity.
